SFC Kyle Kowalski
Co-Owner, Facility Manager

Our facility manager and secondary instructor compliments the long-range engagements with real life close quarters combat engagements. Instructor Kyle Kowalski’s combat engagements although distance wise are relatively short in relation to sniper engagements were highly stressful and required instantaneous target acquisition as well as superb shooting fundamentals as most shots were from a standing unsupported position. Kyle Kowalski was a U.S. Army Ranger Canine Handler and trainer who deployed five times to support the Global War on Terror in combat. As a Special Operations canine handler SFC Kyle Kowalski lead assault forces into battle with his Canine Spike as his primary weapon system while conducting route clearance for enemy ambushes and IED’s. As the leading element, far in front of the assault force he relied on his canine’s senses as a first line warning system to asses potentially hazardous situations. During his time as a canine handler he had multiple engagements that required pin point accuracy to ensure not to hit his furry teammate.
